This hotel had a very good breakfast and it was very convenient to Busch Gardens, the zoo, and the Florida aquarium. The staff was very nice and the rooms were super clean. The bed was very comfortable and we will be staying there again if we come back.

After a miserable experience in my previous hotel, I moved to this location. Guarang Patel, the manager, and the entire staff was welcoming, and I immediately felt comfortable and cared for. Fantastic room, above average breakfast included, and a manager that felt like a close uncle. Thanks Guarang!

I use a mobility scooter and I was pleased with the help I received from the staff, who always gave a greeting. The room was clean, the ADA bathroom had a low tub. The king bed was quite high, but very comfortable. The room was large, plenty large enough to maneuver a wheelchair or scooter. I did not check out... More

I loved everything from the time i walked in to the time i left. Everyone was polite and very helpful. Can't wait until the next time. I brought people with me and they said they loved every moment of. We had clean beds, and towels when we walked in.

Arrived at hotel for one evening to see hockey game down in Tampa, upon arrival found property to be a lot further away from downtown than I thought, seems to be in an area that might be abit more "sketchy" than I usually stay in? Hotel is clean, breakfast was good, pool was very cold. Besides that I guess it... More

While at check-in I witnessed very poor customer service to another customer which gave me a bad feel for the place. This was Valentine's Day and no other rooms could be found in town. Luckily my room was clean and acceptable for one night. The mattress was not great - probably time for a change. Breakfast was just average.

Have no idea where they other 5 star reviews are coming from. I have never left a bad review prior to this, but I have stayed at 50+ hotel rooms and have never been in such a dirty room. I could understand if I was paying $75 or less a night but I paid double the first night. I don't... More
